Fontbonne Speaker and her "Miracle Dog" in the News


On Monday, Feb. 4, Fontbonne University welcomed local author Cyndi Willenbrock and her dog Marshall, the hero in Willenbrock’s book, “Marshall the Miracle Dog.” 

In her book, Willenbrock takes the readers through Marshall’s miraculous journey from his discovery in an abusive home, to an intense surgery during which he loses a leg, to Willenbrock adopting him from the Humane Society of Missouri. Willenbrock and Marshall are now currently filming a documentary in St. Louis and will soon travel to California to discuss a potential film.
